In order to protect the health and well-being of our Clients
and our staff in these challenging and unprecedented times, we have taken the
very difficult decision to temporarily close our Offices.
In light of the Government’s Update on Monday 23rd
March we will be closing the offices at 5pm on the 27th March
2020. This means our three offices at West Bridgford, Hucknall and
Eastwood will be closed.
If you have an urgent query with respect to a current matter
that we are dealing with please contact us in the first instance via our
contact form at the link on the top of this page or telephone 0115 878 9000 where you can leave a message and a member of our
staff will call you back as soon as possible.
Please note that we will have limited core staff to deal
with urgent enquiries only and we would ask that you bear this in mind when
contacting us as you will not get an immediate response.
We are constantly monitoring the situation, working with
government guidance, Public Health England and the NHS and we will open our
doors again as soon as we can.
